What Does Certified Pre-Owned Mean?

Used cars on a car lot


When you’re car shopping in the Mclean area, you have probably seen terms like certified pre-owned. But what does it mean exactly? The CPO meaning for the Mercedes-Benz lineup translates to next-level confidence and assurance for a certain pre-owned model rather than any random one. While you will be paying a bit more than your average pre-owned car, a CPO Mercedes-Benz model is still more affordable than a brand new one. Read more of our guide below to find out the full answer to “What does certified pre-owned mean?”



Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned: What Does It Mean? 

Certified models have more selling points, but what does certified pre-owned mean for Mercedes-Benz vehicles? It means that the model is a part of the Mercedes-Benz CPO program, meeting every single one of the following requirements:

  • Model Year: Each model needs to be of a recent model year. Mercedes-Benz CPO models have to be less than 6 years old.
  • Miles: In addition to being within a certain model year, it also needs to have less than 75,000 miles.
  • Vehicle History Report: Each vehicle needs to have a satisfactory CARFAX® vehicle history report, proving that the recommended maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual was followed by the last owner. This will ensure that there won’t be any foreseeable problems with the vehicle in the Great Falls area. 
  • Inspection: Certified technicians will perform a multi-point inspection for quality. Mercedes-Benz CPO vehicles need to pass a 165-point inspection, where they were checked for categories, such as the exterior structure and appearance along with electrical systems and brand-approved tires. This inspection also includes a road test, where certified technicians ensure the performance of the steering, brakes, suspensions, and driveshaft. They also inspect the overall ride quality down to the noise and vibration levels. 


CPO Meaning: Advantages Over Average Pre-Owned Cars 

In addition to the requirements being a part of the CPO meaning for Mercedes-Benz certified cars, there are also other advantages to these models as listed below: 

  • The model has been inspected by a certified technician thoroughly, so you can be sure that you are enjoying the Mercedes-Benz peak performance despite paying less than a brand new model. 
  • When you buy a Mercedes-Benz CPO model, it comes with the remaining 4-year/50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Once the new vehicle warranty expires, you can enjoy the complimentary Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty for 12 months with unlimited miles. Afterward, you are welcome to opt for the Extended Limited Warranty for one or two years with unlimited mileage if you wish. 

In particular, these are the advantages that separate normal pre-owned cars from certified ones
